Glad you asked Bob.  I just tested the unit here with a second ht.  With the 
APRS MUTE "ON", the "B" band is muted completely which includes voice.  
Didn't know that until I just did this test.

I usually leave the mute on on mine so I only hear the "A" band, but have 
toggled it off at times while testing various locations.  That is why I leave 
my "B" band volume at a normal (15) level instead of turning it completely 
down.

Can't help on the FTM-350--don't have one.
